Details:

Sakatia Lodge is located on Nosy Sakatia, a small island west of Nosy Be, Madagascar. A beautiful retreat away from more touristic areas, the lodge boasts gorgeous beaches, friendly wild lemurs, chameleons and a sense of true detachment. Several cosy bungalows are hidden in the hand-crafted gardens and delicious meals will surprise the most demanding palates. Snorkelling and scuba diving are unforgettable. Nosy Sakatia has a newly established turtle-protected zone, right in front of the lodge.

Walking Tours
A walk around the island gives you a real feel for local life and the untouched beauty of Nosy Sakatia. As an island without roads, exploring on foot is an ideal way to visit the viewpoints and beaches. Join a local guide to explore, knowing that you’re supporting the local community too. You can take a short walk to explore village life or a long walk to see the spectacular views.

Pirogue Trips
You can also explore the island by boat. Grab some complimentary snorkelling equipment and see the island from the sea – both above and below the water. You can travel in a traditional wooden pirogue or a larger, modern boat, but whichever you choose, it’s a fantastic way to see Nosy Sakatia.

Massages
The massage centre Zebu Zen is tucked away in a quiet corner of the lodge offering you a serene experience. Experienced masseurs are local to the island, so you’re helping support the community.

Lokobe Nature Reserve
Situated on Nosy Be, this national park has three different circuits to explore, taking an average of 1.5hrs to 3 hrs to complete. The park is an area of prime forest and is home to 376 species of animals, including 11 species of lemurs. It’s a great place to see some of the amazing wildlife of Madagascar.
